What a great surprise! An early birthday present from my very thoughtful wife.
I’d always wanted to see Rod Stewart in concert. Jayne bought the tickets months ago and kept it secret until the day of the show. I didn’t even know he was due to appear at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.
The concert was great. Rod Stewart truly deserves the much misused term “Superstar”. At 8pm on the dot the curtain went up and we were launched into two and a half hours of Stewart classics. No second rate support act. Just the man himself with his fantastic band of accomplished musicians and backing singers.
Best of all, we managed to sneak a camera past the Nikon Police!
The lady who searched Jayne’s bag told us we’d have to “leave the camera with that man over there” in one of the locked cages. Yea right!
We were jostled in the crowd. Jayne headed for the loo and no one chased after us.
It really annoys me that because a camera looks like professional equipment, you are not allowed to take it into these venues. Yet they never enforce the ‘No Photography’ rule. People were firing off their built-in flashes left, right and centre with no intervention from the security personnel.
All in all it was a good gig and we were lucky enough to have good seat right alongside the stage.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.
